IAF076 Retained Lance Command Charlie released!

“Unlike those of the Retained who strike out along the path of the Knight Errant and take up the Quests of the Code Gallant it is the way of the Banneret that appeals to those of a more universal mind.  With the taking of Tor Banner Oath the way of the Code Gallant is abandoned and instead the instead the staff and discus are worn with the understanding of a seeker of truths.  Bannerets can be found at many levels within a Retained Regiment and also in the other arms of the Prydian Army such as the fleet and the myriad aboard the New Glastonbury Tor.  They have the same training and zeal for their soldiering that other knights do but their overarching mission, much like the Knights Errant, lays elsewhere than on the battlefield.  While the Errant seeks the Quest the Banneret seeks the Truth.  Throughout the Precinct is evidence of ancient ways and even older denizens of the galaxy whose way of life is long gone but their imprints remain.  These imprints are upon objects, upon places, upon worlds.  It is the task of a Banneret to use the staff and cowl to follow an imprint where ever it might lead and what ever it might be.  Among their favoured weapons are the Carwennan Mini-Mine Handgun and the Energy Discus as well as a powered mace.  The staff is the mark of the Banneret who has taken the Tor Banner Oath”
